The crowd in DC for game five got quite a thrill when former Vice President Joe Biden showed up to sit court side. When he was shown on the Verizon Center’s jumbotron, the entire place went crazy with delight, giving him a standing ovation It even caught Wizards coach Scott Brooks off guard. “Well, I heard the crowd react. I thought it was because I got off the bench,” he joked after the game. “I thought they were really excited for me. But I guess that wasn’t the case.” HAH! The ATL is so full of celebs and musicians, so we can’t wait to see who will be seated court side for game six to cheer on the Hawks!
